...Now I am confused, in my many episodic forays across the years into the Linux world I have NEVER been blow away by "any superior speed".

So, what's your opinion, is Ubuntu way faster now?

I started with Ubuntu several years ago (8.04) and was thoroughly impressed with the speed on my aging Dell hardware. It was noticeably faster than any Windows OS I had used (including the XP on the same dual boot hardware). ... but uh oh, I upgraded to the Unity interface and the situation severely reversed itself. The Unity interface is so poorly designed and the performance so bad I really can't use it to develop any more. I still have it as a server but it will not survive long. I have upgraded a few things but these minor changes are not enough to help.
 
I have several other linux machines which are useful and performant, but I'm afraid that Ubuntu has lost its way.
